    why the mixup on the date? Is it 20 or 19 years? Or does that first year of captivity not count? 🙂

  3. Congratulations, B! Who knew you could afford to keep her liquored up for so many years?

    Congrats, Bing and Bride!
    Ken, I suspect that Mr. B piles the drink and food on thick in front NJ Sue. What else could it be?

    (with apologies to Sgt. Pepper)
    It was twenty years ago next year
    that Bingley made his Bride his career
    they’d been dating for a little while
    his poor bride; it was such a trial
    plied with gin until she said “i do”
    (her waking up is what he fears!)
    Bingley’s Bride’s the finest in the land!

    Bingley’s Bride’s the finest in the land
    I thought that I should let you know
    Bingley’s Bride’s the finest in the land
    The heavens have declared it so
    Bingley’s Bride’s the finest
    Bingley’s Bride’s the finest
    Bingley’s Bride’s the finest in the land

    She’s beautiful and charming
    she laughs at my bad puns
    we sit and drink our wine at night
    there’s never been a finer sight
    my love, my wine at night!

    I could go on and on for several days
    but your eyes i know would start to glaze
    so let me end by saying this:
    with my Bride my life is total bliss.
    so join with me and raise your beer
    and give my bride a rousing cheer:
    Bingley’s Bride’s the finest in the land

    I read the blogs today, oh boy
    Bingley’s Bride’s the finest in the land
    A crowd of people said “hurray”
    But I just had to gasp
    I’ve seen his photograph

    They’re married nineteen years today
    We’d like to wish them a few dozens more
    A crowd of people wish them well
    They just keep going on
    Nobody was really sure
    But Bingley might have paid them off…

    Happy anniversary!!!
    That image must be the answer to that staged photo of the groom trying to escape out the sacristy window.

  9. Ave says:

    Happy 19th Anniversary to my darling sister and my incomparable bother-in law! Love you both and wish you many, many happy more years…

  10. I am so eTERNALLY delighted that NJSue’s horrible lapse in judgment and miserable bad luck resulted in my being able to boast the BESTEST of all sister-in-laws as MINE! It completely makes up for Bingley being Bingley and is the smartest move he’s ever made. Happiest of happys and all our love!

  13. Mr. Bingley says:

    Oh, most excellent, ‘Fly! And sadly for you, you’ve seen the real McCoy, and not just a mere photo.
    Good thing extensive therapy is covered by the health plan.
    Thanks everyone!

    Well, congrats to you both. It’s a wonderful thing.
